Electoral commission wins rare praise from Kenyans
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has received a rare applause from Kenyans online for its efficiency.
Kenyans lauded the commission for distributing voters in queues making it faster.
The frequent updates from the commission of issues raised by voters and parties was also lauded as it sacked the officials responsible for delays.
